Man made global warming and lies



Well, now that The Won has rewon control he is showing his true statist, elitist, Marxist and collectives colors... And, of course so-called man made global warming, which offers an excellent way to destroy the economy, which is Obama's goal, is at the top of the list.

And we hear more and more of carbon trading and "revenue neutral." Which are just two words describing something that is pure bull shit. But, something that our more ignorant populace will but into. But, being forever the optimist, I thought I would post some notes to "John," a mythical yet very real member of the low information voter population that elected Obama.

John,  tell us more about this "revenue neutral" thing. Do you mean the government takes money from us and gives it to someone else? Why yes. That's what you mean.

You are being played for a fool and that's a shame. But you don't have to let it happen.

Educate yourself.

"The physics of how carbon dioxide traps infra-red radiation is well known[6]. But there are other molecules in the atmosphere that also trap infra-red radiation. Water vapour is the predominant “greenhouse gas”[7]. What is not so clear is the extent to which the trapping of energy causes heating. There are wonderful mathematical models that claim to show how heating occurs.

Unfortunately, all the models suffer from identifiable flaws, a point considered later."

http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/01/18/a-climate-of-scepticism/#more-77781

Read the article. And consider this. Models are statistical COMPUTER programs and they are based on data. The question is, is the data accurate or does GIGO apply? (Garbage In Garbage Out) And even worse, data can be changed to get a desired result. 

And when asked for the data.

"I received a letter back from CRU stating that I couldn't have the data because "we do not hold the requested information."

'I found that odd. How can they not hold the data when they are showing graphs of global temperatures on their webpage? However, it turns out that CRU has in response to requests for its data put up a new webpage with the following remarkable admission:'

Here is what the CRU wrote:

"We are not in a position to supply data for.....we were not able to keep the multiple sources for some sites, only the station series after adjustment for homogeneity issues. We, therefore, do not hold the original raw data but only the value-added (i.e. quality controlled and homogenized) data".

http://rogerpielkejr.blogspot.com/2009/08/we-lost-original-data.html

Think about that, John.  England's prestigious East Anglia University and home of the Climate Research Unit which is a huge proponent of alarmist man made global warming (MMGW) admits they don't have the original data, just the DATA THEY HAVE CHANGED.

John, remember the old joke? Trust me? I'll respect you in the morning...The check's in the mail.... And speaking of money...

"Whether the billions of promised aid dollars will really materialize is another matter. But a lot of people have already gotten rich – including Al Gore, hundreds of climate scientists, and thousands of environmental activists and government bureaucrats – and others are trying to cash in.
"

http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/01/17/the-carbon-trading-money-tree/#more-77696

And to be more specific let's look at Mann. You know, the guy who developed the "hockey stick" graph. The one that left out the Medieval Warming period and is now discredited...

"Prominent global warming alarmist Michael Mann, who often asserts that scientists who are skeptical of his alarmist global warming theories are motivated by making money, charges $10,000 plus expenses for speaking fees, Media Trackers Florida has learned. The revelation about Mann’s exorbitant speaking fees comes as Mann prepares to give a global warming presentation at a taxpayer-funded Florida public college. Mann will be speaking at Valencia College Thursday, January 17, at 1:00 pm."


http://florida.mediatrackers.org/2013/01/16/climate-alarmist-michael-mann-charges-10000-speaker-fee/

Yeah, John. That's $10K of TAXPAYER money. You know. Money that could go on education...

But let's return to the issue of, can we trust the people who are pushing this? First, let's go back a few years and see what was being said:

"To capture the public imagination, we have to offer up some scary scenarios, make simplified dramatic statements and little mention of any doubts one might have. Each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective, and being honest."

- Leading greenhouse advocate, Dr Stephen Schneider ( in interview for "Discover" magagzine, Oct 1989).

http://www.john-daly.com/schneidr.htm

Look, John that is just a plain and simple justification for lying to the public. You can't make it out to be anything else. Tell me, do you like to be lied to?

Now let's skip forward and see what Dr. Phil Jones, of East Anglia University's Climate Research Unit... Remember them? You know, the ones who didn't save the original data, just the CHANGED data?.... wrote in an email. An email, by the way, that he thought would remain private. So he was writing what he believed to a friend.

"The scientific community would come down on me in no uncertain terms if I said the world had cooled from 1998. OK it has but it is only 7 years of data and it isn't statistically significant."

Now that's true, but that was 2005 and the change has continued. Let's look at some more Jones' emails.

"As you know, I'm not political. If anything, I would like to see the climate change happen, so the science could be proved right, regardless of the consequences. This isn't being political, it is being selfish.

Cheers Phil"

http://www.di2.nu/foia/1120593115.txt

What? "see climate change happen?" John, Jones' just admitted IT HASN'T HAPPENED. (Remember, he's speaking of MMGW, not the natural change that has been happening for millions of years.)

So there you go, John. Study. Think. And try and disconnect "environment" from "climate change." We can have a clean environment without destroying our economy by tripling the cost of the energy that runs our world.

The girl, 15-years-old, was beheaded by her cousin in Kunduz, northern Afghanistan, because he was not allowed to marry her.

Are you now or have you ever been a racist?



You knew it had to come to this.

There’s a new police chief in this small town, and he’s looking to change his department’s reputation after years of high-profile controversy. His first step: Every new officer candidate will take a lie detector test.
“Because of what happened ... every new officer I hire will go through the polygraph, and that’s what it’s focused at, any kind of racial issues or prejudice issues they may have toward any group,” said Coopertown’s new police chief, Shane Sullivan.

Once upon a time in the land of the free and the home of the brave a person was punished for what they had done.

Now the PC boys and girls demand that your thoughts must be pure and within the guidelines dictated by the apparatchik.

Did all those people die for this?

Doctors Without Constitutions



I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that one of the greatest threats to our freedom is Doctors in the "National Health Field."  This is from an article in the Tennessean by, "Manoj Jain is a Memphis physician whose writings have appeared in The Washington Post."

"Two weeks before the Newtown, Conn., shooting, I was at my doctor’s office for an annual physical exam, answering questions on an intake survey. Questions like “Do you smoke? How much?” and “Do you wear the seat belt?”
 
And then one question stuck out: “Do you have any firearms in the house? Are they stored in a locked area?” What business do my doctors have to ask me about my desire and acceptance to bear firearms? Politics aside, what does the medical and scientific literature say about gun ownership and gun control laws?"

http://www.tennessean.com/article/20130106/OPINION03/301050063


The problem is, of course, is that politics cannot be placed aside.

Perhaps Jain has not heard of of it, or more likely doesn't care for it when it interferes with what he wants to do. But it does have this section called the Fourth Amendment in the Bill of Rights. It was designed specifically to keep the government out of our private lives.

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized".
Jain, it is none of your damn business if I have guns and how they stored. 

Please stick to treating the sick and stay the hell out of politics. You are not God and no one has appointed you Supreme Leader.

Free contraception

Frank H. Boehm is professor and vice chairman of the department of obstetrics and gynecology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center; frank.boehm@vanderbilt.edu.

He recenty published an article in the Tennesseean that, essentially, calls for free contraception.


http://www.tennessean.com/article/20130105/OPINION03/301050018/Funded-birth-control-will-slow-abortion-rate?odyssey=mod|newswell|text|Opinion|p


Frank, unfortunately for your ideas, we have this thing called the First Amendment. To wit:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;".

I know it is getting increasing popular for the Elites of this world to want to just do away with our Constitution, and its protections, but it is clear that mandating that a religious based organization provide "free contraception" through employer provided health care violates the employer's God given rights... I write specifically of the Catholic Church's doctrine in this matter.

And to be transparent, I disagree with the doctrine. But it is their doctrine and they have every right to it now as they did about 236 years ago.

And to be even more transparent I believe the 14th Amendment guarantees the right for any one to m
arry anyone as long as they are of a legal age and consent. To wit:

"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

I also know that airline pilots, doctors and educators are the world leaders in a disease called "The God Complex."

But they aren't. They are just skilled human beings who have this chance to either help us, AS WE WANT HELP, or to hurt us. And before you start to argue the point, go back and see the incredible harm that was done by Doctors in the Third Reich. 

So take your ego and put it in your pocket and please quit telling us what we must do to fix a societal problem, not a medical one.

First do no harm is a powerful warning that you should consider.

Goebbels was born 100 years too soon

He must be spinning in his grave at the lost opportunity!

And to think those Americans were actually opposing him!

It looks as if Current TV will soon be a thing of the past. Al Jazeera, the Doha, Qatar-based news broadcaster, has agreed to acquire the seven-year-old cable channel from its co-founders, Al Gore and Joel Hyatt.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/jeffbercovici/2013/01/02/current-tv-near-sale-to-al-jazeera-likely-500-million-deal-for-al-gore-and-co/

And for my younger readers, especially the college educated ones who probably missed this while demonstrating for Palestinian rights....

Goebbels rose to power in 1933 along with Hitler and the Nazi Party and he was appointed Propaganda Minister. One of his first acts was the burning of books. He exerted totalitarian control over the media, arts and information in Germany.
From the beginning of his tenure, Goebbels organized attacks on German Jews, commencing with the one-day boycott of Jewish businessmen, doctors, and lawyers[4] on April 1, 1933.[5] His attacks on the Jewish population culminated in the Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass) assault of 1938, an open and unrestrained pogrom unleashed by the Nazis all across Germany, in which scores of synagogues were burned and hundreds of Jews were assaulted and murdered.[6] Further, he produced a series of anti-Semitic films (most notably Jud Süß). Goebbels used modern propaganda techniques to ideologically prepare the German people for aggressive warfare.
During World War II, Goebbels increased his power and influence through shifting alliances with other Nazi leaders. By late 1943, the tide of the war was turning against the Axis powers, but this only spurred Goebbels to intensify the propaganda by urging the Germans to accept the idea of total war and mobilization. Goebbels remained with Hitler in Berlin to the end. After Hitler's suicide, Goebbels succeeded him as Chancellor. Goebbels along with his wife Magda killed their six young children, and then committed suicide. The couple's bodies were burned in a shell crater, but owing to the lack of petrol, the burning was only partly effective.

What did you do to celebrate New Year's?




"Muslims Burn About 1,200 cars on New Year’s Eve in France," from the Conservative Papers, January 1 (thanks to Pamela Geller):

Interior Minister Manuel Valls said Tuesday that 1,193 vehicles were burned overnight around the country. Clashes between police and offenders in the New Year’s Eve took place in the Muslim majority districts in the city of Strasbourg and Mulhouse. About seven police officers were attacked New Years eve night.
Around 1,200 cars were burned by rioting Muslims on the New Year’s Eve in France, where the mass burning cars in the national holidays are kind of tradition among Muslim residents of the disadvantaged suburbs of immigrants.

In recent years, the celebration of the New Year and the Bastille Day (July 14) in France is often marked by mass burning cars as well. On the night of January 1, 2010, there were 1,137 thousand cars burned on the night of January 1, 2009 – 1,147 thousand were burned.

In the summer of 2010, the Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux made the decision to stop the practice of counting the demonstrators, as they claimed it only encourages the Muslim youths to commit such crimes . The current Minister of the Interior said that “the French people should know the truth.”

The American media has mostly not reported on these incidents, and when they do rarely mention their background or religion.
 
What did YOU do to celebrate New Year's???

Death wish from a Leftie



Ever wonder why so many on the Right despise Lefties??

Let's look at a comment from a Leftie who was too cowardly to use his day to day moniker.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Muslim students asked to leave the country":

It's "killing us", and yet you're still here.

Mores the pity.


Isn't that sweet??



Of course what this piece of trash wished for me is nothing like what was wished for SC Justice Clarence Thomas.

Death Panels - They're coming


Outcry: Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt provoked outrage by saying the death pathway was a 'fantastic step forward'
 
 
I guess, "Ask not for whom the bells toll...." needs to be inserted here.
 
 
The term “Death Panels” was introduced to describe what would happen when Obama’s healthcare law was passed and $500 billion dollars was taken from Medicare.
Why? Because when you remove funding and lower payments some Doctors will cease taking Medicare at all and some will cease taking new patients. Hospitals will also be hit so they will reduce expansion and adding new equipment.
When the baby boomers hit retirement, and they are now starting to, there will be shortages. Shortages always result in rationing. Some by price, some by government fiat.
So there will be panels to decide. In that some will be allowed and others denied the term “Death Panels” is quite accurate. In fact, a version of them exists now in that they approve the treatment and the drugs. The difference is that, since there are no shortages, approved treatments and drugs are not denied.
That this doesn’t bother Obama is easy to understand. His infamous remarks about his aunt are well known and his health care Czar, Ezekiel Emanuel (Rhambo’s brother) is for rationing:
From this source:
 “And in case you think Palin was a little over heated, let us revisit what Ezekiel Emanuel, Obama's health care advisor, had to say about such things.
This civic republican or deliberative democratic conception of the good provides both procedural and substantive insights for developing a just alloca- tion of health care resources. Procedurally, it suggests the need for public forums to deliberate about which health services should be considered basic and should be socially guaranteed.
 
For my slower readers, that means you Lefties, that means a group of people deciding what health care services people should get. Let's pursue what he meant.
Substantively, it suggests services that promote the continuation of the polity-those that ensure healthy future genera- tions, ensure development of practical reasoning skills, and ensure full and active participation by citizens in public deliberations-are to be socially guaranteed as basic.
Conversely, services provided to individuals who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens are not basic and should not be guaranteed.

Again for my Leftie readers, that means no disabled folks should apply.
 An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia. A less obvious example Is is guaranteeing neuropsychological services to ensure children with learning disabilities can read and learn to reason.

He means it boys and girls. Not for himself, of course, but for the "others." The children that can offer nothing but love and being able to dress themselves by age 9. The mother that remembers your Senior Prom but not seeing you yesterday.

Of course you have a duty to the state. You exist only to serve the state. Love the state. Pay no attention to the ovens being built.

Muslim students asked to leave the country


 
 
Subject: Muslim students asked leave the country (USA)

Checked this out on Snopes and it is correct.
Muslim students asked to leave the country (USA)

Very interesting -- the University is standing by their professor and not bowing down to special interest groups!

Professor Wichman E-mail
Claim:
A Michigan professor sent an e-mail telling Muslim students to leave the country.

Status:
True.
The story begins at Michigan State University with a mechanical engineering professor named Indrek Wichman.

Wichman sent an e-mail to the Muslim Student's Association.
The e-mail was in response to the students' protest of the Danish cartoons that portrayed the Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist.
The group had complained the cartoons were 'hate speech.'
============

Enter Professor Wichman.
==========================================

In his e-mail, he said the following:
===============================!
Dear Muslim Association,
As a professor of Mechanical Engineering here at MSU I intend to protest your protest.
I am offended not by cartoons, but by more mundane things like beheadings of civilians, cowardly attacks on public buildings, suicide murders, murders of Catholic priests (the latest in Turkey), burnings of Christian churches, the continued persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt, the imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims, the rapes of Scandinavian girls and women (called 'whores' in your culture), the murder of film directors in Holland, and the rioting and looting in Paris France.
This is what offends me, a soft-spoken person and academic, and many, many of my colleagues. I counsel you dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal, and uncivilized slave-trading Muslims to be very aware of this as you proceed with your infantile 'protests.'
If you do not like the values of the West - see the First Amendment - you are free to leave. I hope for God's sake that most of you choose that option.
Please return to your ancestral homelands and build them up yourselves instead of troubling Americans..
Cordially,
I. S. Wichman
Professor of Mechanical Engineering
=============================

As you can imagine,
The Muslim group at the university didn't like this too well.
They're demanding that Wichman be reprimanded, that the university impose mandatory diversity training for faculty,
And mandate a seminar on hate and discrimination for all f! reshmen.
Now, the local chapter of CAIR has jumped into the fray.
CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, apparently doesn't believe that the good professor
had the right to express his opinion.
==========
For its part, the university is standing its ground in support of Professor Wichman,
Saying the e-mail was private, and they don't intend to publicly condemn his remarks.
============================================================

Send this to your friends, and ask them to do the same.
Tell them to keep passing it around until the whole country gets it.
We are in a war.
This political correctness crap is getting old and killing us.
